Pochettino told me Spurs need a player like me - Ginola

Yesterday morning's (Singapore time) defeat means Spurs have now gone three league games without a win.

Tottenham threw the kitchen sink at it, but could not find a way back.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez both bagged sublime first-half goals to hand the Foxes a 2-0 lead and although Harry Kane was able to half the deficit, some woeful finishing from Spurs saw them unable to salvage a draw.

The loss leaves Tottenham sitting in fifth place in the Premier League, a further 13 points behind leaders Manchester City, whilst the teams around them all have the opportunity to increase the distance between them.

Spurs' frustrations were complete when they were denied a penalty in time added on.

"It's difficult to say why because you can't talk about tactics or selection - it was a collective".

A similar chance fell to Alli later in the half, but the Englishman's left-footed effort was again turned aside.

In it, he he disclosed private conversations with Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Dele Alli among others.

Leicester went close to a second goal from an unexpected source in the 33rd minute when Rose's clearance from Vardy's cross drifted inches past Lloris's post.

I guess people want to try and explain a string of bad results and will question virtually anything, but this theory doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Spurs slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Leicester on Tuesday, extending their recent Premier League record to just one win in five games. The former France international has claimed that Pochettino told him that he is searching to sign a player like him.

The dip has also coincided with the release of Pochettino's book, 'Brave New World', which documents his time in charge of Tottenham.

It can certainly said that their form in Europe has come at a cost though.

Kane has in fact scored 11 league and cup goals against Leicester, more than any other side in his career. The club was involved for a very good thing. "That got us off on the front foot". 'Compete' is the most important word in football and then when you compete, you show your quality.

There is a school of thought among avid Spurs observers that Pochettino's rotation of his full-backs is out of sync.

He said: "It was a fantastic game for us". The safe option for Pochettino and Spurs would be to shift Dembele into a meaningful, but reduced role from the substitute's bench.
